unless your a complete fool the context in which you speak of them should make them very easy to decipher which is the one being spoken about.

I don't see it much in forum talk that much, but online games and the such I see it alot. Could be helpful but I'm sure I was probably the only one alive who didn't know what it stood for.


I guess it is possible, but I'm much more inclined to believe it stands for "What The * " That is the ONLY context I've ever seen it used.
